If you didn't make it to the Christmas gathering today, you missed a treat. There was much laughter, fun and fellowship. And of course, there was lots of fabric!
The meeting was called to order at approximately 10:08 a.m. There were 21 members in attendance.
Judy, Gwen , Lawanna, and Brenda helped to decorate the tree and display quilts at the library. I believe Pat H. has multiple quilts on display. This year the guild was asked to do the cases, so make sure you go by and look.
The reading of the minutes was tabled due to the fact that Terri took the minutes last month and was out of town (please pray for her Mom). The treasurer's report was also tabled until next month. I will put the pictures and minutes up as soon as I get them.
REMINDER: In January, annual dues of $15.00 will be due.
Judy will need butterfly quilts at the end of January in order to get them to Pigeon Forge. Please see her for specific details.
Please remember CC and her family as she lost her son in an accident earlier in the week.
We will be making a $50.00 donation to the Lutheran church for the use of the building for today's meeting and Christmas Gathering.
Beginning in January, Judy will be doing a block of the month. It will consist of 12 12 inch blocks sashed and with a cornerstone. (I will post the instructions on the blog). It is a sampler quilt (courtesy of Brenda, SEE PICTURE). We will be using a Tri-Rec ruler but you do not have to buy one.
Judy also passed out directions for anyone wanting to make a heart block to give to Starkville for donation quilts. The block is 9 inch in the colors of your choice. This is entirely optional. You may make one or many.
Eva Marie is getting a T-Shirt order together. Long sleeves are in Forest Green and Carolina Blue. Short sleeves are in Cardinal Red and Royal Blue. The cost is $15.00 for short sleeve and $20.00 for long sleeve.
The following is a list of possible activities for the new year:

The ladies presented an Ugly Fabric Quilt top to Barb for all of her hard work as this year's president and since the Ugly Fabric Challenge was her idea. Thanks for all that you have done Barb! It was truly a great year! Naomi had the idea and put the blocks together. She also embroidered everyone's name on their blocks.
